The Euromediterranean Center for Nanomaterial Modelling and Technology (ECMT) is a research center located at the Scientific Campus of University of Salento (Lecce).
The mission of ECMT is the development and application of experimental and
theoretical methodologies to design and implement nano/bio-materials,
nano/bio-electronic devices and systems, novel tools and concepts for
The main research activities include: polymer nanofibers and
nanotechnologies based on soft materials, nano-biotechnologies for
environment and health, and theoretical modelling
of nanosystems using density functional theory.
ECMT currently consists of about 25 people (including CNR scientists,
University associates, post-docs and Ph.D. students) from a wide range of
disciplines (physics, engineering, chemistry and biology).
